On the front page are some photos of a bull fight, so what you may say, it is Spain but this was near Granada and apparently the bull would not fight so they bought in a bulldozer to terrorise the animal, they hounded it almost to death when the Matador went back into the ring and killed it "humanely"

Apparently the bulldozer initially was trying to herd the creature out of the ring. Appaling state of affairs.

Shocking and disgusting The poor animal must have been terrified. How could such a thing be allowed to happen. I don't understand why bull fights are still allowed in this day and age anyway. It is barbaric and how can anyone say that the killing of a bull after chasing it round a ring and sticking spears into it (or whatever they are) is a humane killing!

I haven't seen it for ages. You used to be able to pick it up at the tourist office in Torremolinos, but not any more. It's a shame because it's a great read.
